NFL coaches are known for asking players weird questions at the NFL Combine, but the Atlanta Falcons apparently came out of the gates hot asking Ohio State DB Eli Apple if he likes men...

The Falcons then issued this apology...

“I am really disappointed in the question that was asked by one of our coaches,” Quinn said in statement sent to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday. “I have spoken to the coach that interviewed Eli Apple and explained to him how inappropriate and unprofessional this was. I have reiterated this to the entire coaching staff and I want to apologize to Eli for this even coming up. This is not what the Atlanta Falcons are about and it is not how we are going to conduct ourselves.”

It's a fair question for an Atlanta based sports franchise as the ATL is the most on the DL city in America

Sigh. This bothers me as a Falcons fan. Why the frack does a coach care? If a kid can ball, he can ball. Maybe this is why we're the Falcons. To concerned with politics and BS crap than just simply getting those W's.
